KATE: I’m gonna need a bigger boat for this week’s haul! I’m excited for several of Wednesday’s big debuts, including Akira Toriyama’s Manga Theater, Kaiju No. 8, and Robo Sapiens: Tales of Tomorrow. If I had to pick just one title, however, it would be Emma Dreams of Stars, which Vertical Comics promises will give readers a “rare glimpse into the inner workings of The Michelin Guide, and the grueling yet rewarding life of an undercover professional foodie!” Three stars for Emma!
MICHELLE: There are some nifty oneshots coming out this week, and a new volume of Yona of the Dawn is always something to celebrate, but I simply must pick the final volume of Takane & Hana. I have enjoyed the series immensely and will miss it when it’s over, but still look forward to these two having their happily ever after.
SEAN: Must agree. Whether you get the regular (him holding her) or special edition (her holding him), Takane & Hana Vol. 18 is a must-read for shoujo comedy fans.
ASH: There really is a bunch of interesting releases this week! While I’m particularly fond of food manga, robot stories are another weakness of mine, so my pick this week is the award-winning Robo Sapiens: Tales of Tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to giving the omnibus collection a try.
ANNA: There’s a lot of great manga coming out this week! I’m always lured by new series though, so I’m going to make reverse harem vampire manga my pick and go with Rosen Blood.
